Madonna Doesn't Shave Her Armpits & Other Celebs Who Have A Distaste For Grooming

So, if you were checking your Instagram feed lately you might see that Madonna likes to show off her hairy armpits. You know what? Props to Madge for not giving a damn (or as she says, "Long hair...... Don't Care!!!!!!"). Do what you want and what makes you feel comfortable when it comes to grooming... or, er, not grooming.

The Queen of Pop isn't the only famous lady out there who prefers to not do the waxing-shaving-tweezing thing. In fact, we've rounded up a bunch of other celebrities who would rather just not pick off a few hundred stray hairs. We're not judging, we're just saying... these folks have a publicized distaste for grooming.

Julia Roberts

Remember her famed Armpitgate? When she showed up to the Oscars with totally unshaved pits? Her hairy armpits were a big middle finger to people who say that even the most glamorous women must be totally hairless.

There was an uproar when she showed her hairy calves after winning the Golden Globe for her work in Precious. What some of the audience members may not have known is that the star hasn’t shaved in all of her years as a comedienne.

Amanda Palmer

The punk-cabaret artist doesn’t shave her pits or legs, but doesn’t condone burning your razors if you’re trying to make a statement. She has said, “You know what’s really cool? Wake up every morning, decide what you feel like doing, and do it.”

Lindsay Lohan

Look. Sometimes it’s hard being Lindsay Lohan. Sometimes there are days where shaving your legs is just a chore, like that time Lindsay didn’t shave her legs at Pure Night Club.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is pro bush. As in, no shaving, no waxing, no nothing. She likes to show it off, too: remember when she appeared on the front of Candy magazine? While it may be jarring at first (whoah, nudity), it’s definitely cool to have a running discourse about how hair growth or removal is totally a choice.
